It will be remembered as the night Ray Allen bailed out LeBron James and Dwyane Wade and, quite possibly, saved a championship for the Miami Heat.
Allen stroked a clutch three-pointer to force overtime and then made a key defensive play in the final seconds of the extra period to give the Heat a 103-100 victory against the San Antonio Spurs in Game 6 of the NBA Finals at AmericanAirlines Arena on Tuesday night. Game 7, otherwise known as American sports heaven, is on Thursday.
If it’s anything like Game 6, prepare yourself for a crazy night of rollercoaster emotions and more unbelievable twists than a cheap mystery novel.
“It was by far the best game I’ve ever been a part of,” James said. “The ups and downs, the rollercoaster, the emotions, good and bad throughout the whole game. To be a part of something like this is something you’re never going to be able to recreate once you’re done playing the game and I’m blessed to be a part of something like this.”
